I'm buying a new build house in Southville with a mortgage from Santander. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

You should visit two or three local Southville conveyancing solicitors seeking estimates. You should base your choice not just on cost, but on promptness and on how comprehensive the response was.
